As Brian mentioned, I will be presenting at the PNW meeting of the American Academy of Religion and the Society of Biblical Literature. My paper will be a portion of my Master of Arts thesis that I did on the Prologue of the Gospel of John. In short, I will be looking at the deuteronomic prophetic agent motif that I find present throughout the John 1:1–18. In the end, I argue that this is the predominant motif in the Fourth Gospel upon which the Prologue was based and draw a few implications from there.
I will be presenting on Saturday afternoon, May 12, 2:40 p.m., at Concordia University, Portland, Oregon.
